Finding the Perfect Farewell Gift: How to Say Goodbye in Style
Saying good-bye is one of the hardest and emotional things that
we have to do, especially when the person that is leaving is your
best friend, a favorite relative or even a favorite person at work.
Change is not something that we enjoy very much and this type of
change seems so permanent. Someone once said “endings are just beginnings”,
then we have to ask ourselves, then why does it hurt so much?
Using the Internet to Say So-Long ... and to Keep in Touch
Today, no matter where someone is moving to, it is possible to
keep in daily touch with him or her. The Internet is so wonderful
with the amazing email capabilities and of course we can always
call them as well. But no matter whether it is easier to keep in
touch today or not, it still engenders a great deal of sorrow to
see them leave.
A Marvelous Farewell Party
If you really want to say good-bye in style, you may want to ask
their permission to throw a farewell party with all their friends.
You could host this event at your home or find a restaurant or even
plan a big outing to a ball game or a picnic. You will want to take
a lot of pictures or even better have someone bring their video
camera. An event like this will surely let them know that they will
be missed greatly and give them the opportunity to say good-bye
Things You and Your Friend Enjoyed
Now when it comes to the right gift, you should buy something that
reminds them of the type of things that the two of you enjoyed doing
together. You could also make them something original if you are
creative and this would be a wonderful reminder of you every time
they saw it. You could also make up a picture album and have everyone
bring you pictures of them and the different things they did through
the years along with a special message from each as to how this
person touched their lives. This is a certain tearjerker and will
be treasured forever.
In the end, when you are looking for a farewell gift for someone
that is an important part of your life, you will want to be sure
to make a memory. When all is said and done, when you are forced
to part from someone that is important to you ... what you have
left is the memory of your time together.
By making certain that your farewell gift adds to those memories,
you will be in a position of making sure that the bond that you
have created with this special person lasts and even strengthens
over space and time.
